Sunday Synth Jam: This video captures a VCV Rack modular arrangement by Omri Cohen of Arvo Pärt‘s Spiegel im Spiegel.
The work, originally for piano and violin, is in Pärt’s Tintinnabulation style, in which explores using traditional triads in new ways.
“Tintinnabulation is an area I sometimes wander into when I am searching for answers – in my life, my music, my work. In my dark hours, I have the certain feeling that everything outside this one thing has no meaning. The complex and many-faceted only confuses me, and I must search for unity.
What is it, this one thing, and how do I find my way to it? Traces of this perfect thing appear in many guises – and everything that is unimportant falls away. Tintinnabulation is like this. . . . The three notes of a triad are like bells. And that is why I call it tintinnabulation.“

Amazing and beautiful work. Arvo Pärt is my favourite composer.
Very nice, did a version myself when I had a Korg Poly 61M on loan last year. Check it out https://soundcloud.com/maydaze-368636886/spiegel-im-spiegel-switched-on-arvo-part
